# First, I would like to thank everyone who has helped me over the past year
And many thanks for the tutorial.
# I feel it is time to start on a rewrite. Because of this, the tutorial
# won't get updated much for the next few months (or more). Rather than
# referring to the document as a tutorial, I've given it the name "Learning
# Gtk-Perl". The organization is tentatively planned to be as follows:
# Table of Contents
# 1. Gtk-Perl Tutorial (just the facts, ma'am)
# 2. Gtk-Perl Widgets
# 3. Gnome-Perl Widgets (which I haven't even started to document)
# 4. General (timeouts, IO, selections, drag-n-drop, and other
# things not widgets)
# 5. Administration
I like the current organization, maybe because I had partly read the
C version, so it looked familiar. It's easy to quickly find
things. But there's no doubt that your planned organization should
work fine too.
# The organization is intended to be more like a books than an online
# document (mainly because of its size, I am not trying to get published,
# though that would be cool).
# I am also considering a section on custom widgets and a section on Gdk
# graphics, though I'm not sure if they should go between 4 and 5, or be
# their own documents.
# Because of this, I would appreciate it if I could be some input. First,
# what does everyone think of the rewrite? Second, what works (and what
# doesn't) with the existing tutorial? Any areas where you think I could
# use improvement would be appreciated. And finally, contributions
# (especially of example programs and chapters that I've not written yet)
# would be very helpful. I would also like some help on the question of
# custom widgets, which I haven't much experience with, except for some
Shame on me, I am almost as advanced as I was a year ago, when I was
proposing to write a tutorial on adapting custom widgets ... One
problem is I forgot wathever docbook I started learning, another is I
still don't really understand how custom widgets are glued to perl and
a third is that I'm writing my PhD thesis.
# basic object oriented programming.
# And finally, I would like to apologize to those who have expressed a
# desire in the areas of the tutorial that aren't done yet (styles,
# drag-n-drop, etc) for the delay they are going to experience in getting
# this information.

Cheers on your new project and thanks again for the documentation,
